I had sex with csw two times at a night 6.5 months ago.I had used condoms.But I don't think that I used it correctly and consistently.Because it is my first experiences on sex.At 50 day post exposure,I tested negative for hiv duo ultra test and at 4.5 months post exposure I tested negative for a rapid test.But now I am worried that I had pre existing immunodeficiency disorder or not.How can I know if I had pre existing immunodeficiency?Many hiv specialists say that immunodeficiency disorder can cause late seroconversion.I had often cough if I eat ices and repeatative sneezing and runny nose even if the weather is a little cold since childhood.I also had ENT problems now.Are they preexisting immunodeficiency symptoms?But I never had recurrent illness or rushes or other infections.Now I feel very anxious,worry and have stress.I am almost dying because of my anxiety.Do I trust my negative results?Do I have pre existing immunodeficiency?Do I have late serocoversion after 6 month post exposure because of pre- existing immunodeficiency?Do I need to retest?But I am so afraid of turning negative to positive when I retest.Please give me advices.God will bless on your kindness.

Hello and Thank You for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.

First, I would just like to mention that HIV does not discriminate based on occupation, sexual identity, race, creed, or socio economic status. Therefore, sex workers are not at a higher risk than anyone else to be living with HIV. In fact, sex workers are more likely to use condoms and get tested more often than the general population.

It is very easy to see when condoms break or are not being used correctly; they should be covering the penis and containing the ejaculation at the end of a session. Using a condom during intercourse is a low risk activity for the passing of HIV.

If you did have an existing immunodeficiency disorder, it would have been diagnosed very close to birth, as these are very serious medical conditions.

You are conclusively HIV negative based on your Rapid test at 4.5 months and there is no need for further testing at this time. HIV antibody tests are conclusive at 3 months and beyond. You can trust your results, and move on from this experience.

Thank you for your question and please feel free to write us back at any time.
